Anyone who experiences divorce knows quite well the meaning of the word “loss” because the loss takes place on so many levels. Besides the obvious loss, divorce can mean the loss of many other relationships, material possessions and self-worth. That’s when it’s time to look for something else to hold on to. The bible and all it’s spiritual food and wisdom can provide that for you.
During the times in your life when there’s not too much stress or too much negativity, it’s easy to connect with the gospel message. But when times become overwhelmingly difficult, it’s harder to really see the gospel message through the fog of your trials and connect with it in a way that makes sense to what you are going through.
A good scripture passage to embrace during divorce and times of loss is “God giveth and God taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord” (Job 1:21). This scripture says it all! When things are good and you’re happy, you should be grateful and say, “Blessed be the name of the Lord.” And when times are dark and you are suffering, trust and humility enable you to say, “Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
No matter how dark your troubles are, even with the great loss and devastation of divorce, the light of Christ is always with you and He will never place upon you a burden you cannot carry. Know that Christ allows this cross and will make you a better person for it.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord (Job 1:21).
